(ASBURY PARK, NJ) -- The ShowRoom Cinema Asbury Park and Paranormal Books and Curiosities get a jump on Halloween – and their annual Halloween night sell-out screening of Halloween (1978) – with three big-screen programs of horror classics - Army of Darkness, House On Haunted Hill, and The Blair Witch Project throughout September.
Rebel Supply Co. Presents Graveyard Shift, Friday, September 13 at 10:00 pm. Army Of Darkness (1992), the third film in Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead series, follows the story of Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell), a store clerk who is transported to the Dark Ages by the sinister magic of the Necronomicon. Anchor Bay Entertainment calls it “the most outrageously spectacular horror comedy ever made.”
Barrymore Film Center Presents Horror Church, Sunday, September 22 at 11:00am. In House On Haunted Hill (1959), millionaire Vincent Price throws a haunted house party for an unusual assortment of guests. Each is offered $10,000 – if they make it through the night. “…the best of the campy horror films that made [director William Castle’s] reputation…” –Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
Paranormal Books and Curiosities and The ShowRoom Cinema Asbury Park team up for a 20th anniversary screening of The Blair Witch Project (1999), Wednesday, September 25 at 10:00pm. The film helped popularize the found-footage format and became one of the most financially successful independent films ever made. “…the scariest movie I’ve ever seen.” –Lloyd Rose, Washington Post
